ohhh I'm jealous of all this fiber-buyin going on. I just spent every last penny [and then some] on a new computer so I am banning myself from even LOOKING at pretty new fiber. besides, I've got some lovely stuff in my stash that I really need to use up so I can get more hehehee.

Look what I did!

The bottom five are nylon, and look weird because they aren't completely dry yet.  I love nylon!  It didn't felt at all, and I am pretty rough with my fiber.   Everything on top is wool bits from SSS.  The orange and blue is kool aid, and the rest is acid dye.  The kool-aid turned out a little more blotchy, but that was my fault, not the dye.

Ooo, I love the green and deep red!!! Hey, does anyone know where I could get my hands on some acid dye formulas? I've looked all over the internet but haven't found anything. Or maybe we should start a thread for dye formulas and everyone can share their colors? I bet we'd have a nice reference list pretty quickly!

CamOovas, how does the nylon feel? I haven't used it before but got some from SSS to try out. It looks as soft as wool.

Softer!! It's like feathers in roving form!  I don't spin, but it needlefelts wonderfully too.  I didn't know I could feel this way about fiber!

I love the green and red too, they came out perfect!

I love that red fiber CamOovas!  It's so deep and rich... think of all the wonderful things you could do with that!

freestyle,  I've just started using food dye and vinegar in place of proper acid dyes and I've been over the moon with the results.  I can't believe that the colours are so good with these simple ingredients!  I'm hanging to get some more roving to dye... I've run out now! 

Plenty to felt with though... I've worked out what I'm crafting up for UntouchableFace and am looking forward to playing with it this weekend!
